Rainbow coloured light flowed out and the surrounding scenery once again underwent a tremendous change. However, the same was true for Bai Xiaofei, who was currently still on top of a city wall.
However, it was a little different. The current wall was much more dilapidated than the one in the previous city …
Bai Xiaofei's 500-odd soldiers stood densely on the city wall. Although everyone had become much stronger after the last pass, there was still a trace of seriousness on their faces. Even Tie Zhu was no exception.
The fourth trial was to guard the city!
Guard the city below your feet and ensure that it is not broken within one day and one night. If the civilians within the city die or flee, more than half of them will be deemed to have failed! After the success of the garrison, each civilian who survived would be rewarded with an additional force point. There were now 21,466 civilians.
The enemy's manpower allocation is unknown!
The commander was three Martial Masters and two Grandmaster Puppeteers!
Unlike the people outside, Bai Xiaofei did not know that there was a benefit to this trial, so he considered a lot more things.
Looking around, this dilapidated city was about the same size as the small town before. However, the four walls were damaged to different degrees, and there were less than half of the equipment used to defend the city. Below the walls, there were a lot of commoners kneeling, as if waiting for Bai Xiaofei's decision to start.
After thinking for a long time, Bai Xiaofei decided to upgrade all the surviving soldiers to level 1. The initial reward of the fourth stage had a total of 1000 military points.
As for Bai Xiaofei, he did not exchange the remaining manpower for new soldiers. Instead, he chose to repair the city walls and replenish the defensive equipment.
Unlike soldiers, these items could not be brought to the next level. Therefore, using military strength was equivalent to losing everything!
However, Bai Xiaofei's actions were not completely meaningless. When the complete and brand-new garrison equipment appeared on the walls, the soldiers in front of Bai Xiaofei had a huge change in expression.
This was what Bai Xiaofei concluded after going through three trials. The military strength of both sides, as well as what Bai Xiaofei did, would affect the morale of the soldiers he controlled. The higher their morale, the stronger their combat strength would be under the same situation!
Although there was still a gap between it and reality, it was not easy for this illusion to do the same.
Furthermore, Bai Xiaofei's soldiers weren't the only ones who had changed!
When Bai Xiaofei chose to start, the commoners below the city wall suddenly let out cries of surprise and joy. They shouted "miracles" and "heavenly soldiers" one after another, as if they had escaped from danger.
Seeing this scene, Bai Xiaofei's heart couldn't help but tighten.
If he had not repaired the wall just now, would the people below him be in a different state?
The first problem faced by those who had yet to repair the wall was to pacify the people. There were even some who did not do well. Before the enemies could attack, they had already started running away with a lot of civilians …
"General, you must save us! The City Lord has already run away, you are our last hope! "
"Yes, General. If possible, we really do not wish to leave this place. I have been living here for more than sixty years!"
Under the lead of a few elders, countless commoners started to appeal to Bai Xiaofei for help. The "miracle" that Bai Xiaofei had just been summoned became their last hope of survival.
Upon seeing this scene, Bai Xiaofei was overjoyed.
Ask me for help, all right!
I was just wondering how to make all of you speak!
As he thought about it, Bai Xiaofei's expression turned extremely serious. He slowly walked to the edge of the city wall, and his deep voice sounded.
"Everyone, rest assured. As long as I, Bai Xiaofei, am still alive, I will never allow an enemy to rush through our gates!" I can guarantee this with the lives of all of our warriors! "
"With my life!"
"With my life!"
The soldiers behind Bai Xiaofei shouted in unison, causing even Bai Xiaofei, who was caught unprepared, to jump in fright.
F * ck, how did they do it in such a manner!?
"That's up to the general. If there's anything that's of use to us, feel free to speak up. Although we can't fight, we can still do it as laborers!"
The leading old man spoke again, his words making Bai Xiaofei elated.
Damn, is this old man a worm?
Why, he says what I think!
"Gramps, I really need your help with something."
The excited Bai Xiaofei jumped down from the city wall. With his condescending attitude, it was really unsuitable for him to ask for help.
I want as many flammable substances as fire oil and alcohol. If possible, I want as many stones as I can carry to the four walls of the city. The city gates are directly sealed, so it's best to block them with huge rocks.
Bai Xiaofei nodded as he spoke, his small head nodding like a chick pecking rice. It gave him a comical feeling.
"I see, General, you just watch!"
The smiling old man said as he turned around. As long as Bai Xiaofei didn't allow them to defend the city, they would be willing to do whatever hard work they had to do!
He wouldn't die from exhaustion anyway!
"Listen to me, the general needs our help right now. Women and children go and find all the jars, fill them with all the burning oil and alcohol in the city, and then move them onto the city wall. Men, smash the walls for me right now! The stones that were dropped should be used to block the gate, and the remaining should be moved onto the city wall! "
The moment the old man opened his mouth, his bell-like voice severely did not match his physique. What made Bai Xiaofei even more surprised was that the old man seemed to have a lot of prestige in the city. The moment he opened his mouth, everyone did as he said!
Furthermore, Bai Xiaofei did not specify what to do exactly, but the old man's actions were very clear, as if he was a professional!
"Gramps …" You were? "
Swallowing his saliva, the stunned Bai Xiaofei asked slowly.
"In a few years, I'll become the city's garrison head. There's nothing to brag about."
The old man stroked his beard as he spoke, the word 'pleased' written on his face with an arrogant look on his face.
[What the heck, you don't have anything to show off …]
Bai Xiaofei forced a smile on his face.
"Thank you, grandpa. If we can succeed in defending the city this time, you will have done a great service!"
This flattery was omnipotent no matter where one went …
After sending the old man off, Bai Xiaofei let out a long sigh and climbed back up the city wall.
Next, it was time to deploy the troops!
Tie Zhu, who was standing in front of all the soldiers, had been upgraded to a senior rank 4 soldier. Apart from the reflective equipment on his body, his strength had also reached that of a warrior!
As long as he survived this ordeal, Bai Xiaofei would have at least twenty soldiers at Tie Zhu's level!
